Leg 12 continued…

On Wednesday lunchtime we anchored in Runswick Bay and then went ashore for a pint in the lovely village. Later that day we stopped at Finley Bay (south of Scarborough). Thursday saw us sail round Flamborough Point (see the photo below of the white cliffs). 

On Thursday night we set off on our first night sail of the trip - Grimsby to Lowestoft (110 miles). It was a lovely night sail although we were closely hauled with a force 5 wind all the way. Incredibly, we sailed all but the last five miles!

 The bridge below opened up as we sailed into Lowestoft Haven Marina at 3pm. Phew! Well done crew! A great week had by all!
